Sergey Konstantinov Russian Art Festival at Arttitud San Francisco.

Celebration of Russian Art.Traditional Russian Art show at Attitud . We are happy to welcome The Russian Art Festival at Arttitud San Francisco for San Francisco Art Market Week, May 16, 2014. Art opening reception May 16, from 6 to 9pm, with refreshments and Russian culture entertainment provided. Many of the participating artists are from Russian and Eastern Europe. Participating artists include: Mihail Chemiakin, Vlacheclav Kalinin, Alexander Osmerkin , Alexey Vladimirov, Sergey Konstantinov, Victoria Kovalenchikova & others. Konstantinov has had his works in major collections and exhibitions in Europe and North America since the mid 1980s. Some of his more impressive commissioned work in recent years has been for Suzanne Tucker and also the Getty Family. Equally astounding with figurative, abstract and historically-flavored styles of work, Konstantinov's brushwork knows no boundaries, with recent forays into photoshop-powered printmaking showing yet another facet of his bold artistic vision and personality. In conjunction with the artMRKT San Francisco international art fair, Arttitud presents Russian Art Festival, an exhibition featuring fine art in traditional and contemporary styles by a select group of Russian and Eastern European-born and trained artists. Curated by Tatiana Takaeva, these critically acclaimed artists have shown their work internationally and include among their accomplishments considerable museum exposure, significant commissions, and placements in numerous collections both domestically and abroad. In addition to the art, visitors will also have opportunities to experience and enjoy a variety of Russian entertainment. Participating artists include Sergey Konstantinov whose subject matters range from classic representational to innovative abstracts, Aleksey Vladimirov whose sculptures are in museums and private collections throughout Europe, Valery Vershov who is recognized for his complex paintings of luxurious interiors populated with creatures and characters that render the totalities surreal and entertainingly absurd, and Victoria Kovalenchikova whose unique architectural perspectives give viewers a glimpse into mysterious alternative worlds. This is a rare opportunity to meet and mingle with these creative talents, and to immerse yourself in a wondrous cross-cultural adventure. Alan Bamberger ArtBusiness.com www.artbusiness.com

With a formal and professional background in architecture and design, Takaeva brings a fresh, aesthetic-based perspective to the art world.

  • Your blog won’t become popular overnight. Blogging is a process, a commitment. After last week’s article, The Gold Mine in Your Artist Blog, several people commented to the tune of: My blog is no gold mine. I can’t get any traffic or interaction with people. In nearly 10 years of blogging and many years of teaching artists to blog, I have witnessed a large number of artists build successful blogs. I have also, sadly, watched even more artists’ blogs falter. The main reason artists’ blogs fail...

  • When the Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883, no one wanted to go across it.  It was the first bridge made of steel and not iron. Is was also the longest suspension bridge in the world—50% longer than any previously built. The day it opened – May 24, 1883, a total of 1,800 vehicles and 150,300 people crossed what was then the only land passage between Manhattan and Brooklyn. On May 30, 1883, six days after the opening, a rumor that the Bridge was going to collapse caused a stampede, which was...

With my new assistant, Maeve Eichelberger, at her recent opening in Denver. She starts tomorrow as, officially, my administrative assistant. Unofficially-officially, she’s the Supervisor of Karmic Activity. Don’t blame me, she chose the title. It’s even on her business cards. Maeve’s job is to make sure the...

  • In my last post, I made the case that your blog is a gold mine for you. What I didn’t say is that it’s only a gold mine if you are consistently committed to blogging and to improving with each post. You can only fulfill this commitment with rich content. But what do you write about and where do you find it? It’s probably not under the wood boards of the deck, but you never know. On pages 143-44 of I’d Rather Be in the Studio, I lay out 32 specific ideas for newsletter...

  • Last week I asked how you’re going to be marketing your art differently now that Facebook Reach is plummeting. It’s tempting to just jump to another social media site. Google+ anyone?. I would encourage you, as I always have, to build up content on your site first. As this Facebook brouhaha has reminded us, we don’t own social media sites. Their stockholders do. We will never be in control of what they do with their platforms or how they make money. But we do own and can control our own sites....

  • It’s CRUNCH TIME!  SURTEX is right around the corner – I always freak out a little on April 1st when I can say “SURTEX is next month…” it comes out more like “SURTEX is next MONTH???????” and panic and second guessing ensues… All kidding aside, SURTEX is a HUGE part of my marketing so I take it really seriously.  (Hence the fear sneaking in, second guessing, etc – it’s part of my process I guess.)  But here are 5 reasons why I keep...
